A Conversation with Myself: Embracing Imperfection and Self-Discovery

Updated: Sep 18, 2023

As I grow older, I find myself gaining more confidence and getting to know myself better. Occasionally, I observe myself behaving poorly, both toward myself and the people I know. But I look on the bright side of these moments, seeing them as opportunities to learn new things about myself.

"Every day is a new discovery," and I embrace it wholeheartedly.

I acknowledge that I am learning valuable lessons from my mistakes.

Nobody is perfect, and I've come to appreciate and even welcome my imperfections. They make life more fascinating.

Now, I can see my mistakes clearly, every day.

I've reached a point where I no longer allow others to dictate my choices or worry me. I do what I believe is best for me, making my own mistakes, regardless of others' opinions. That time of being influenced by external judgments is gone forever.

Each day, I transform into a new person, just like you.

I used to tolerate negative influences from friends, lovers, parents, or strangers, but I can't do that anymore. It doesn't make me feel good inside. I ask myself, "Is it worth it?" and my resounding answer is, "No, it isn't!"

I prioritise my happiness above all else.

I've also stopped relying on alcohol, cigarettes, or drugs to calm my nerves. Instead, I've harnessed my willpower.

Do you know what willpower is?

It's the faculty by which a person decides on and initiates action.

My actions may seem unconventional to others, and they may think I'm strange or nonsensical. But I no longer care. I follow my intuition and do things without needing a reason because I genuinely feel like doing them. I'm building more confidence with every step I take.

I believe that all these actions will lead me somewhere extraordinary.

In a few years, I envision buying a studio, perhaps near a bustling city or in the countryside with floor-to-ceiling glass windows that allow me to gaze at the sky and enjoy a stunning view of the sea from my balcony.

I hope people will come and visit me.

In just a few years, we will create a new concept, something that will benefit everyone. Trust me; it will happen.
